Follow-up Comment #1:
I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah. While
doing so I have noticed a few problems which are described below.
First of all, you must determine whether your project can run on a Free
Software based operating system such as GNU/Linux. If so, please be also
aware that it should run primarily on such. Having seen your comment about
Dev-Cpp and MSVC I have gotten the impression that it is a Microsoft Windows
only project. As such I am afraid we cannot host it. Please see the 'No
dependencies on non-free software' section at
https://savannah.gnu.org/register/requirements.php for details.
Please provide us with more information about these issues.
Secondly, if the project does run on a Free Software based operating system,
please include a (perhaps temporary) URL pointing to the source code.
Alternatively, you can forward the code to me by email or attach it to this
We wish to review your source code, even if it is not functional, to catch
potential legal issues early.
For example, to release your program properly under the GNU GPL you must
include a copyright notice and permission-to-copy statements at the beginning
of every copyrightable file, usually any file more than 10 lines long. This
is explained in http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html. Our review would
help catch potential omissions such as these.
Note that sending code to our repositories _is_ a release, since the code
will then be publicly available through anonymous access.
Thirdly, please note that Savannah supports projects of the Free Software
movement, not projects of the Open Source movement.
We are careful about ethical issues and insist on producing software that is
not dependent on proprietary software.
While Open Source as defined by its founders means something pretty close to
Free Software, it's frequently misunderstood. For more information, please
